Publisher's Summary

Chris Gethard has often found himself in awkward situations most people, including you, probably would have safely avoided. The good news is now, thanks to this book, you can enjoy the painfully funny consequences of his unfortunate decisions at a safe distance. A Bad Idea I'm About to Do invites listeners to join Chris as he navigates an adolescence and adulthood mired in hilariously ill-fated nerdom, and to take comfort in the fact that - as his experiences often prove - things could always be much, much worse.

"Chris Gethard is comedy in a fighter's crouch." (Seth Meyers)
"There's truly no poorer judgment than not buying this book. Except maybe diving into a swimming pool full of malaria." (Patton Oswalt)

awful voicework

i don't know how the actual book is, because the voice of the guy who reads it sounds like a robot - completely inhuman - which is the opposite of how thoughts by gethard should be read. Ill buy the book and return the audible.

Not as funny as I though

I picked this book after listening to several 30+ hour novels in a row. I wanted something light and funny...I picked this book based on a few reviews that said it was laugh out loud funny. I did not laugh out loud. I chuckled a few times and found some of the stories amusing, but I didn't find this book funny enough to give it more than 3 stars.
